Abstract:

This report discusses the achievement of better weapon and fuze safety by employing methods and techniques used in formal reliability programs. Some of the safety counterparts of the reliability tools are less developed. Most notable is safetys counterpart of reliabilitys environmental criteria. The potential hazards analysis is proposed as a technique for improving this situation by developing a list of abnormal environments. This gives the designer engineering goals for his safety components. Other aspects of the formal design safety program which are discussed are the series safety redundancy, safety analyses, tests, design reviews, and failure reporting and corrective actions.
